    1. Cool, but almost impossible, and the ds can't take so much.
    2. Again, cool, but the ds wouldn't be able to handle it. Just look at DSLinux, it can barely support commands.
    3. Very cool, but it would take a lot of time. It could possibly access the limewire server or whatever and download a song.
    4. WAT
    5. Heh, was started (only discussion) in a topic before, but it's almost impossible, too.
    6. All you need is a 3-in-1 and GBAExploder (software thing) for it.
    7. FretFury. Google it.
    8.There's some already out there, just search!
    9. DSOrganize and/or Moonshell.

    - Ds windows (like xp)
    - Ds mac (like a mac)
    Remember, you can't use these to run official games anyways.

    - Ds limewire
    Download speed will suck shit. And if you get millions of items when you search, I think it may lag pretty bad.

    - A new version of super mario war
    probably possible

    - Dstube (youtube for ds)
    There is no way to play youtube videos for the DS. so unless somebody converts ALL the videos on youtube in a ds playable format, this is impossible.
    + buffering may occur every 2 seconds.

    - Gba emu (Realy would like this)
    But it's impossible.

    - Ds rom downloader (a app to download roms or homebrew games on)
    The Ds download speed is very slow, so a full rom can take about 9 hours for an average sized game. Small homebrews might be downloadable.

    - Ds Hero (a rip off of guitair hero with guitar grip support with downloadable ssongs over wifi)
    try fretfury.

    - Ds race (a 3d online racing game with nice grafix and custom tracks and car which can be downloaded over wifi)
    PSHH

    - Ds media player (a cool media play like windows media player and look like it too that can play videos , music and view pics
    We've got moonshell/hacked sakura firmware.

    Although it would be kinda lame I would love to see a remake of the old Pac-man arcade for two players where one played the ghosts and the game could use two screens and the Pac-man player would use the d-pad while the ghost player would use the A/B/X/Y buttons.

    This has been discussed thousands of times try searching. I wouldn't be surprised if somebody asks about a N64 or PSX emulator next.

    BECAUSE NOBODY WANTS TO EVEN TRY. THE DS PROBABLY CANT HANDLE A GBA EMULATOR, AS A WAY OF PROOF, DOWNLOAD A WINDOWS GBA EMULATOR AND TRY TO RUN IT ON AN OLD 66MHZ 486 (OR EVEN 368) PC, WITH FRAMESKIP SET TO MAX AND WITHOUT SOUND, IT WILL STILL BE SUPER SLOW.

    Ever since BEFORE the DS came out there has bee a solution for playing GBA games. Just grow up and stop asking for something that there has NEVER been a market for. JUst buy a GBA flash cart, thats what they're for.

    Last I heard it was because gba games read data faster then DS games
    which is why gba games take time to load into RAM when you start them

    Do some research before you ask, and try to use proper punctuation and capitalization.

    Long story short, the hardware of the DS makes it impossible to load a GBA game directly from slot-1. If you boot into GBA mode, you lose access to slot-1 and any other DS-specific features. With slot-1 gone, where is the rom itself going to be stored? In the DS's 4 MB of RAM that isn't usable in GBA mode? In the GBA's 256 KB of RAM? If you stay in DS mode the whole time, you face the fact that the ARM7 processor functions entirely differently in GBA mode and DS mode so it's not as simple as running the GBA commands directly through the ARM7.

    So could a hardware-based hypervisor-type setup work? According to Exophase, it might be possible with tons of work and tons of glitches. A software-based emulator would be more likely to succeed but would run at 1 fps, if that. And nobody's going to bother with that when users can simply spend $20 to get perfect GBA game playback as it is.
